Halloween Costume Ideas

Guess who’s really boring and is not dressing up for Halloween! Woooo!!

Some friends and I were thinking of having a horror movie marathon after getting some things done for university this weekend and I thought ‘Well, I may dress up for that then’. But out of nowhere came a lot more work to do, so we won’t be having time for that. Sad, I know.

So I’ve been celebrating Halloween this week in my one way in the little free time I’ve been able to get my hands on.

The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick

Title: The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet
Author: Bernie Su, Kate Rorick
Genre: Contemporary, Young Adult, Romance, Humor
Published: June 2014

My Rating: 5/5

Twenty-four-year-old grad student Lizzie Bennet is saddled with student loan debt and still living at home along with her two sisters - beautiful Jane and reckless Lydia. When she records her reflections on life for her thesis project and posts them on YouTube, she has no idea 'The Lizzie Bennet Diaries' will soon take on a life of their own, turning the Bennet sisters into internet celebrities seemingly overnight.

When rich and handsome Bing Lee comes to town, along with his stuck-up friend William Darcy, things really start to get interesting for the Bennets' and for Lizzie's viewers. But not everything happens on-screen. Lucky for us, Lizzie has a secret diary.

'The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet' takes readers deep inside Lizzie's world and well beyond the confines of her camera - from the wedding where she first meets William Darcy to the local hangout of Carter's bar, and much more. Lizzie's private musings are filled with revealing details about the Bennet household, including her growing suspicions about her parents' unstable financial situation, her sister's budding relationship with Bing Lee, the perils of her unexpected fame, and her uncertainty over her future - and whom she wants to share it with.

Featuring plenty of fresh twists to delight fans and new readers alike, 'The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet' expands on the web series phenomenon that captivated a generation and reimagines the 'Pride and Prejudice' story like never before.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Title: Outlander (Outlander #1)
Author: Diana Gabaldon
Genre: Historical Fiction, Romance, Fantasy, Time Travel
Published: January 1991

My Rating: 5/5

The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon--when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach--an "outlander"--in a Scotland torn by war and raiding Highland clans in the year of Our Lord...1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into intrigues and dangers that may threaten her life...and shatter her heart. For here she meets James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, and becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
